An order was called in after a long day. Within 15 minutes they were at my door. The food is good, hot, and fresh.

I was in town for a conference at the Fairmont Hotel and late meetings forced me to consider delivery! Great surprise with Bamboo delivery. FAST AND VERY GOOD! The curry chicken, hot and sour soup and brown rice were delish! Several individuals with the conference ordered and all reports were stellar! If you want to avoid and walk down and... More

We were staying at the Holiday Inn around the corner so we thought why not give it a try. It was so good the first time we went back again. Short and simple menu, but not lacking in choice. Both food and wine very good value.

We stopped by this restaurant after a long day of sightseeing. The staff promptly took our order and delivered a lovely pot of tea to the table. The food came right out and was delicious. We ate the meal with gusto and have nice memories of such a lovely restraunt. Thanks.

Took a chance and decided to go here for our wedding anniversary. Big mistake. I ordered Chicken Teriyaki which was OK but the chicken could have been better quality, my daughter ordered Sweet and Sour Chicken which looked nicely prepared but again the meat could have been better quality. My husband ordered Beef Teriyaki which appeared to be strips of... More

The place only had a few in. We opted for the shared starter. We didn't really need it. After getting our mains we started to realise we bit off more than chew. The portions were huge. We received complimentary soup to start and green tea. Always a bonus. For both to eat it ended up being 25 dollars with tax.... More

High on reviews, so thought I would pop in. It was around 2:00 and other than one other guest, the restaurant was empty. I ordered the 2 item lunch combo which was a bargain at $8.00. I had the Magnolia Beef and the Orange Chicken. The portion was generous and it had some nice flavor, but probably not the very... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
